Parents Says School Closures Are Impacting 2nd Level Students More Than Primary Pupils.

: 26/02/2021 - 16:10

Parents say school closures are impacting secondary school students more than primary school children.

Figures from the CSO show that almost half of respondents with a child in fifth or sixth year say school closures has had a "major negative impact" on their learning.

14 percent of parents with children attending primary school felt the same.

One in three parents of teenagers said remote learning was having a negative impact on their child’s social development while just over a fifth of parents of younger children said the same.
